  • Opportunities to explore the Memphis community through speakers, participate in service projects and community leader shadowing
  • Opportunities to plan and participate in an off-campus experiential trip to explore concepts of leadership and service.
  • Interact with leaders and explore leadership/service opportunities in the Memphis community.
  • Interaction with faculty outside of the classroom
  • Opportunities to connect with a local community organization and commit to a long-term (academic school year) service project
  • Programs to discuss leadership roles, philosophies, and interests as emerging leaders.
